Bio and Links
Bio Photo Been into genealogy since about 2000. Love cemeteries and am an occasional RV traveler.

I am a "no-dispositions-unknown" contributor. This means that not only will I not create Burials Unknown (except as permitted), I will not link memorials to BUs.

Concentrating my efforts now to Cowlitz and Lewis Counties. Currently (2010-2014) working on Winlock Cemetery, Winlock, WA: trying to decipher my last 100 photos of deteriorating stones. Little Falls Cemetery & Vader Catholic Cemetery, Vader, WA are done!!(9/2010)

2014: Continuing row-mowing work at Whittle&Hubbard Cemetery, Castle Rock, WA.

Also inputting cemetery records in IOWA from transcriptions published by members of the IA Genealogical Society.

From the Find A Grave FAQ's: "The copyright of all photos posted to Find A Grave remains with the original submitter. No use of photos for any other website or personal use is given without prior consent of the original submitter."

[NOTE: With attribution, MY photos may be used for your personal, not-for-profit use. Please enjoy them!]

Another note: I will gladly transfer memorials *within* the FindAGrave guidelines (see FAQs) only. I will be happy to add links and bio info for any memorial I manage (please use the 'Edit' tab and the 'Suggest-A-Correction SAC' feature); the recent spate of deletions, dupes, and widespread name-collecting of persons trying to build their family tree on this site is a misuse of the site's original intent.

What was the last time you saw the name of any

article or story?
Please move them back to the top of the obit.
Thank you,

RE: Nancy Wartehn Guill photo
My data indicates that there are 26 Guills buried in Hancock County, most of whom are in Sparta Cemetery. I can send you a list or a link, whichever you wish if you want this data.

RE: Annie Hill #70821531
Yes it is very hot, especially up on the top of the cemetery hill, I go there a lot but cannot walk the hill any more with bad knees. My husband, his father, grandfather and great grandmother, were all born and raised in Castle Rock, so they have lots of relatives in Whittle-Hubbard.

Sorry about that mistake, I was looking at the wrong Mr. Hill in our cemetery.

RE: Annie Thacher Robinson #57808045
MARILYN 24 JUN: Hi Kati, Just a note to tell you I saw your flowers on this memorial. I've been working on husband's family tree for a long time and just got to the Thachers recently. I see you're related. Wondering how...I've got hubby lined up to do a DNA test soon and expect I'll be discovering lots of new cousins for him.

KATI 27 JUN: Hi Marilyn, Annie is my cousin-in-law. Annie's husband John Marklin Robinson is my maternal first cousin-six times removed through his mother's lineage (John and I are both Taylor descendants). I have Annie and John's family in my family tree at Ancestry if you need any info on them. I'm not researching the Thachers though. Please feel free to contact me directly at: . Best Wishes, Kati McSweeney

Stephen Kronberg
Victor Lieurance
Marilyn - Thank you for pointing out the duplicate, there was no Victor when I searched the Lieurance surname, must have been a "glich".
I thought it waas unusual given his name was on your posted photo for his wife. Stephen
